Holly + Blake’s Antique Book-Inspired Wedding Invitations

As an avid reader, I can definitely appreciate these wedding invitations from Emily at Flyaway Paperworks inspired by the title page of a well-loved book. Emily used a dark inky blue for the invitation details and even incorporated a faux leather envelope liner and belly band reminiscent of an antique book cover!

From Emily: I’ve always adored the look of vintage books, and the elegant simplicity of all of the typefaces and characters (especially those gorgeous ampersands and borders!). So I was thrilled to design this autumnal suite, inspired by the title page of a well-loved, favorite book.

The invitation and RSVP card were printed onto hand-dyed Crane Lettra 110 Pearl White Paper with inky blue letterpress ink. One of my favorite parts of this suite is the faux-leather envelope liner and belly band, reminiscent of an old book cover, to add texture and earthy color. To top it all off, we used vintage postage stamps in the colors of Holly and Blake’s fall palette.

Lauren + Samuel’s Dip Dyed Save the Dates

Dip dyeing is one of my favorite techniques – the results are stunning and each individual piece is completely unique! These save the dates from Alex of Goodheart Design combine green dip dye with crisp black and white letterpress. Love!

From Alex: Lauren came to me with two requirements for her save the date: brush lettering and dip-dye. How could I say no to that?!

She wanted all black and white with some ‘lush’ green dip-dye. Czar Press letterpress printed them on extra thick paper so I could individually dip-dye each one without them warping. I had such a fun time not only designing the save the dates but also dip-dying each one! It’s so nice to be able to design outside of the computer sometimes.

Julissa + Christopher’s Vintage-Inspired Champagne Foil Wedding Invitations

So we’re all pretty familiar with shiny gold foil by now, yes? But what about matte metallic foils – like the subtle champagne foil on these vintage-inspired wedding invitations from Nicole at Umama? Nicole worked with the talented team at Boxcar Press to print these invitations, pairing the subtle matte metallic foil with crisp black and white. Such a great combination!

From NicoleI wanted to create a pattern that would combine romance and elegance and could be used throughout the wedding invitation suite. I went with a classic deco scallop for the invitation and a set of nestled peacocks that repeated from the reply card to the envelope liner.

While reviewing swatches from Boxcar Press, we absolutely fell in love with the tawny foil. It was more subtle than the gold foil, and really lent itself to the softness that Julissa was looking for. It mimics the color of champagne, and brings to mind the decadence of the evening, and the cause for celebration.

The invitation suite was printed on Crane Lettra 220 Pearl White paper with tawny foil and black letterpress. A coordinating liner was also custom designed and printed in two shades of black. Mary from Boxcar Press was the keen eye that helped to pull all the details together seamlessly from design to print. The end result was breathtaking!

Alison + Nathaniel’s Art Nouveau Garden Wedding Invitations

These beautiful wedding invitations from Brynne at Harken Press mix botanical details with Art Nouveau elements for a garden wedding at a private estate. I’m particularly in love with that gorgeous envelope liner and pops of coral!

From BrynneI worked with Alison and Nathaniel to create wedding stationery that complements their charming garden ceremony at a private estate in Topsfield, Massachusetts. They wanted to include outdoors elements but also highlight the cottage-style architecture of the historic mansion estate. My goal was to balance the natural and rustic botanical elements with an elegant Art Nouveau look.

Lauren + Bradley’s Rustic Calligraphy Wedding Invitations

I’m a fan of calligraphy invitations for weddings any time of year, but this invitation from Alex of Goodheart Design combines calligraphy with a rustic vibe perfect for fall! Alex kept the color palette simple, with letterpress printed charcoal gray text on white paper for the invitation and rsvp card, white foil on charcoal gray paper for the accommodations card, and kraft paper envelopes. Such an elegant combination!

From AlexThe inspiration behind this invite was simply color. Lauren wanted a two-toned invitation in ivory and charcoal with a rustic sophisticated vibe. I hand lettered the invitation, rsvp card, info card and the rsvp return address stamp using a calligraphy pen.
